Moving for Church?
I agree with the others who responded to your post Merlin. I would also add to make sure you don't confuse church and scripture with your faith. Faith is spiritual. Church and scripture can be spiritual too if you allow the Spirit to flow in and through you. You make the Church.
I recently have realized that I made church and scripture into my God. I was kicked out of a church (not unusual for folks who post to this site). Church was my whole life. When I wasn't working, I was either praying, studying the bible, worshipping, going to church, being around church, small bible study groups, or spending time with my child. That was it. And when church was "taken" away from me, so to speak and I got angry for what went down I stopped reading and praying for a while. I'm still not back to where I was, and it's been over a year now. But what I have found during this time is what many who are POW's realize. When you can't go to church, and you're not allowed a bible to read or study, what do you have left? If you still have a vibrant relationship with God and you still partner with His Spirit's work in and through you then you're on good ground. Anything else is shifting sand, as Jesus once said.
I hope this helps. I'm new to the threads, and this is an old post so don't even know if anyone will read it, but thought I would add my two cents for what they're worth these days!
